Re: To ask her out or not?

You got me confused now as well. So she is local as in completely Swiss. Why exactly would she speak Japanese then?

Re: To ask her out or not?

Rings mean nothing, unless they are attached to a married person. Then it is a no no.

You just seem so shy and sorta in love, quite sweet.

But, whatever, take the bull by the horns and ask her out in a romantic way. She says yes, great. She says no, try and stay friends. And in a few years you shall laugh about that rather awkward moment when that happened.

Fancy a pizza? used to work for me.

Still does, actually!!!

Looks like I missed the most important information: she is Japanese.

Prior to going to Japan in an academic interchange, I asked my Japanese classmates for some tips on Japanese women. However, the best tip I received, BY A LONG MARGIN, came not from them but from a French friend who had lived in Tokyo: "Dude, Japanese women, (un)fortunately are raised to serve their men. But they unconsciously like to be submissive to men even in other settings... ". He was 100% right

In plain good English: if you want to date her, take the initiative and be bossy.

I am packing and book a flight to Tokyo . Is it save yet to go to Hiroshima ?

Snapsterone: Up the ante: Gazpacho, Vitello Tonnato, Borscht. Hard to get the balance though, if you end up bidding Chateaubriand, and she accepts, then that will be the _base_ level she expects you to cook at, every meal. Forget farting in bed too.


On second thought, stick with pizza and select a new target.

If you do go, make sure you visit the peace park in Hiroshima.

Re: To ask her out or not?

Your story reads a bit like a bad romantic novel from the early 1970's.

Nevertheless, good luck!

The Migros do a really creamy, cheesy one which is edible if you add a bit of garlic powder and some chives!! And a dollop of creme fraiche.

Re: To ask her out or not?

Ah, so you are Japanese? Or did you just add the Japanese thing randomly to make the story more confusing?

What happened to "do you want to see my music collection"? I'm sure she'd be up for some Kawaii-core...

it looks like a cheap ring, defo not engagment or wedding... something like goldish color with crystal stone with lailac color..

the reason I did not ask because she wore the ring for first time (we been meeting for over a month) and also after she "encouraged" me to approach that *imaginary lady*
The imaginary lady thing is going to bury you if you dont come clean. You are lying to her mate. OK certainly not a serious one but clear that up. Honesty can be a real killer issue with relationships, and life. Or just say it didnt work out. But that is dangerous because she knows roughly what you want. Her.

Ask her if she has a partner. The answer of course will be NO (you havent got the message yet, like most men, me included).

The chances are about 99.999999999999999999999999999% that she knows you are keeen on her.

Be open. Give her a chance to slip the knife in your heart. That what the girls like. Well one of the things.

I have read the books on psychology mate. The girls are in the drivers seat in these situations with few exceptions. They just trick the men into thinking the opposite.

Oh and one other thing. Women have 50% better periferal sight than men. They can check you out without looking directly at you. And they know when they are being observed.

Lastly, a appology to the girls for giving away some of your secrets. Periferal vision is one most men dont know about. Not knowing worked well for me.


Good luck mate.
